Question about 1996 Chevrolet Camaro
I see no problem with shift in trany. Could it be a fuse? If it is the TCC PWM Solenoid. How easy is it to change in valve body. Is there an easy test to see if power is feeding to it??
Hi, the likely problem is that your torque converter clutch (TCC) solenoid has failed and will no longer engage the clutch. However, it may be worth a try to have your transmission fluid flushed and the filter replaced, if you haven't done that recently. There is some small chance that will fix the problem. The TCC is a device in the transmission that locks the engine to the transmission once you reach highway speeds of at least 25 mph or higher. The purpose of the clutch is to conserve fuel and reduce heat in the torque converter. The car will run fine without the TCC, but will get slightly less highway mileage. There is no harm or safety concern with driving the car as it stands now. However, if you intend to keep this car and drive a lot of highways miles, it may be worth the expense to have it repaired. (you could check your mileage to see how it's doing without the clutch) The repair should be done by a transmission expert, as there are several possible reasons it has failed--I'm only guessing it's the solenoid but would HAVE to troubleshoot to be sure. The repair can be done by any reputable transmission shop--it does not have to be done at the Cadillac/GM dealer. That said, I do recommend you shop around a bit if you want to have the car repaired, as there is considerable variation in the approach to this repair. It is possible to replace the solenoid without removing the transmission, but some shops may claim you need a complete rebuild. Make sure to tell them your trouble codes--that was very helpful to me. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

youve either got a bad connection at the new battery or the power wire is shorting out did he have too pull the cables too get them too fit?

P0740 is TCC circuit malfunction P0753 is shift solenoid A circuit electrical P0758 is shift solenoid B P1406 is EGR pintle position and P01860 is TCC circuit.

If it is in the solenoid itself, yes. If it is in the wiring or the computer, no. The only way to tell, is to replace the solenoid and turn off the light. Or do some extensive search in the wiring harness.

A bent terminal
A backed out terminal
A damaged terminal
Poor terminal tension
A chafed wire
A broken wire inside the insulation
When diagnosing for an intermittent short or an open condition, massage the wiring harness while watching the test equipment for a change
When you command the TCC PWM Solenoid Valve OFF, the voltage increases to B+.
All conditions met for 5 seconds.
